* OUT OF THIS WORLD: Thinking of buying a new buggy for 2013?
How about the Orbit Baby G2. It’s the brainchild of two Silicon Valley-based fathers with a background in product design. The system operates on a ‘SmartHub’ which has a 360 degree swivel, meaning your baby can face forwards, face you or even face sideways. A modular design means you can swap in new components as your baby grows. Dubbed the ‘Dyson’ of the buggy world, the Orbit Baby G2 includes a pushchair chassis, and collapsible rocker carrycot. The stroller is €799, and the G2 six-piece is €1,179.
